*Note: Series was to continue thru until November 14, 1991 but ended here due to bad ratings.

*Note: News Item, Rick Du Brow of the LA Times.
ABC's "Into the Night," for instance, was a classic formula for late-night failure. Hardly 30 minutes had passed on Dees'
very first night when a viewer knew here was a case of terminal inanity. The show never had a sense of style, the ultimate
trademark of "Tonight."
"Into the Night" also was a show with a very new memory of past TV. It is possible a latenight TV entertainment series can
succeed in a big way without a host who is a comedian Tom Snyder did it but the odds are heavily against it.
Even worse, once Dees stepped down from the show, ABC ignored the past again by attempting one of the most unsuccessful formulas
known to TV a series of temporary hosts and personalities. No matter how good the performers, it just doesn't work on most big
league shows because there is no sense of continuity or someone being in charge.
